At the Bird and Pet Clinic of Roseville we recommend a semiannual examination for all avian and exotic patients. We want to be proactive in their health to ensure a long and happy life.
We recommend yearly bloodwork to catch any underlying disease processes that may not be readily apparent, and to have a baseline for future comparison.
At the time of the appointment we will have a client care team member update any information that may have changed, so please be sure to arrive 10 minutes early.
The veterinary assistant will get the patient’s vitals and discuss any concerns that you may have.
The doctor will be in shortly after the assistant to perform a thorough examination which includes (but not limited to): ausculting the heart and lungs, checking the skeletal structure, a fecal examination to test for parasites, and a dental evaluation for mammalian pets. We include a wing, beak and nail trim for avian patients if it is determined to be necessary. All other exotic examinations include a nail trim for your pet free of charge.
The doctor will discuss their findings and give any recommendations that they may have.
